Nestled away on Manor Farm in the middle of an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty, guests will be able to enjoy every one of the unique aspects of the grounds. The Dingle has been furnished to a very good standard and the family bathroom has a quirky finish with fossils in the decoration, which date back thousands of years.

There are also plenty of opportunities to quietly watch the wildlife and horses that live on the farm and also, with an extra cost and prior agreement with the owner, the opportunity to take part in riding lessons, stabling, schooling and training provided by the owner who is a world renowned horse trainer.
